A/N: My first House story. Let me know what you think.

Denial

House frowns as he looks at the board. Dark urine, malaise, loin pain, anemia...

"It's Renal Cell Carcinoma," House announces finally. "Get Wilson to perform a biopsy."

Chase coughs awkwardly. House glares at him and demands, "What?"

"House..." Chase is trying to be gentle.

House growls, "Spit it out already!"

"House... Wilson isn't here, remember?" Chase asks in an annoyingly soft voice. "He was in a car crash. He didn't make it."

House bites his lip to stop his sarcastic response.

Wilson doesn't like him lashing out at everyone, and if he says anything, Wilson will give him hell later.
